resonating. we have a new cnn poll that came out over the last 24 hours in 15 battleground states that they are watching, and it shows that mitt romney leads the president right now 51% to 43%. so is this message not resonating? >> well, you know, i think the reality is we really mostly focused on whether people are resonating with their life and are they doing better off now, and it's a tough time. leading the country out of a recession, near depression, isn't easy. but we really have to say who's got the right answers. and is so we'll keep drilling home what the president is doing and keep reminding people that smorm promising to go back to the bad old days, and there's absolutely nothing in his record that shows that he can do the sort of work that the president has done. mitt romney was 47th out of 50 states in massachusetts in job creation when he was governor. he's been an outsourcer in chief who has never shown an ability to really create hardworking jobs here in america. and so we'll keep making the case. i think the president's made tremendous inroads and he loves being o

chairman of the rnc bungled a response on cnn talking about romney's position on the mandate. >> president obama and romney says this is a mandate not a tax. what is the rnc's position on this? >> our position is the same as mitt romney's position. it's a tax, that's the only way that the supreme court came up with the decision that it did in order to make it constitutional. >> michael, one of the ramifications i think of the supreme court decision is that many americans are walking around saying, oh the supreme court confirmed its s as a tax, and people are thinking i'm getting taxed to pay for obama care. >> yeah. there is that element of confusion that now exists out there. you're again talking about a small percentage of the people, those who do not comply with the law, who would be subject to this penalty/tax. but the broader population believes it applies to them. that is part of the narrative that the rnc and republicans around the country will be driving home which is why what was said yesterday on the program was kind of a gaffe because it then flips the script and all of a sudden

. he was asked on cnn whether off romney should release more years of his returns and he said this. >> i think he has released a tax returns. >> more of them. >> shouldn't -- >> no, i don't. >> why not? why shouldn't the american people see those? >> he's been very successful. he released everything that he is required to release including paying more than 16% of his income to charitable giving. i think it is the diversionary tactic. most people don't care about this. governor romney has been very successful. get over it. it is a reality. >> do most people care about this issue? >> well, i don't think they care about this specific issue obsessively, but as you said and what michael said, if you put the secrecy of most of his financial transactions next to concerns about outsourcing and offshoring that the democrats have been poking around at next to their efforts of trying to paint mitt romney into a corner on defending tax cuts for the wealthiest americans and if you sort of put the aura of secrecy around the whole thing, then i think you raise questions about what mitt romney's u

massachusetts was a penalty and disagrees with the court, but on tuesday he said on cnn, our position is the same as mitt romney's position. it's a tax. yesterday from romney, the courts said it's a tax and therefore it is a tax. is there anything or anyone who is properly managing the romney message when it comes to how they feel about the supreme court ruling? it seems like they are caught flatfooted on this. >> what the situation with the desperate comments what from what they show is how dangerous an is she for the campaign. the issue is an individual mandate. what mitt romney did in 20007 and that's the issue that brought the tea party national prominence and one of the most politically charged issues to date and something he has to be careful with. now the obama campaign as we heard earlier, mitt romney doesn't stick to his guns. he is changing for political expediency and that's something you don't want to see. >> how does it not look like the tail is wagging the dog on health care? >> the challenge is the fact that the supreme court came out with the ruling that it's the tax. the dem

bain. >> just in case you thought ed gillespie made a mistake, he repeated it on cnn. >> he took a leave of absence and ended up not going back at all and retired retroactively. gr did romney give back the salary he made between 1999 and 2002 when he retired retroactively? look here, folks, here's the bottom line, the s.e.c. filings shows romney made at least d $100,000 a year as he was allegedly doing nothing at the ceo of bain. maybe he should have followed the lead of his father, he stepped down of the american motors corporation when he ran for office. it was real simple. a report in the nation said the board elected george romney as vice chairman but granted him an indefinite leave of absence without pay. mitt romney chose to retroactively retire. he was double dipping. but more importantly, the romney campaign still cannot say who was running bain capital during the time in question. >> does the governor think that those are good deals for bain? >> those deals were made by -- those decisions were made by folks that were running the company differently, so i don't have the det

doesn't need that extra baggage. >> john harwood, cnn chief correspondent and wrietder for "the new york times," thank you very much. good to have you there. >> you bet. >> what john is saying about making the economic argument against mitt romney and who is the best economic talker on the democratic side, if you don't think that bill clinton is that person, the other democrat, you probably think is the best person on that is elizabeth warren. we found out today that on the same night that bill clinton is going to be addressing the dnc, so, too, is massachusetts senate candidate elizabeth warren. the democrats seem focused on this economy thing. all right, we've got a best new thing in the world coming up. it's about a bronze medal. but it's a best new thing. how could that be? stay with us.

correctives. but remember, crazy joe really is crazy. so here he is today on cnn. >> this wasn't a slip-up. i don't regret anything i said. >> of course. it doesn't feel like a slip-up to crazy joe. crazy joe's whole life is a slip-up. now, pardon me while i have a word with the voters of illinois's eighth congressional district. you have a choice coming up in november, and there's a lot we can say between now and then about the difference between crazy joe and tammy duckworth on the issues, the difference between house republicans and house democrats on the issues. there's a lot we could say about qualifications for office of the candidates, including military service and bravery in combat. but vfr you evaluate any of those things, the threshold question you face in the illinois eighth is, do you really want to vote for a crazy person? again? choose control. introducing gold choice. the freedom you can only get from hertz to keep the car you reserved or simply choose another. and it's free. ya know, for whoever you are that day. it's just another way you'll be traveling at the speed of he

the economy will improve. according to a new cnn poll, six in ten say the economy will be doing well by 2013 versus 39% who say it will be poor. those are the opposite of where the poll stood last october. we'll be right back. this man is about to be the millionth customer. would you mind if i go ahead of you? instead we had someone go ahead of him and win fifty thousand dollars. congratulations you are our one millionth customer. people don't like to miss out on money that should have been theirs. that's why at ally we have the raise your rate 2-year cd. you can get a one-time rate increase if our two-year rate goes up. if your bank makes you miss out, you need an ally. ally bank. no nonsense. just people sense. >>> governor romney said we should just let detroit go bankrupt. i refuse to turn my back on communities like this one. i was betting on the american worker. and i was betting on american ç industry. and three years later the american auto industry is coming roaring back. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was president obama this afternoon kicking off his two-day bus tou

according to the new cnn poll, by 50-49, people agree with the supreme court decision so the country is evenly split which is basically a blank slate that either side can try to bring to bear. >> it's a cliche, but i think this issue was so thoroughly litigated in the court of public opinion two years ago that it's all sorted out. i think the president, it's factored into the stock price against the president. i think what the supreme court was going to decide wasn't going to make a whole lot of difference to most voters. they already formed opinions on health care. >> mitt romney and ann romney, when you talked about trying to flesh out who is this guy and does he share your values, mitt romney and ann romney jet skiing, i assume in new hampshire, so you can see that probably the best thing that he's got going for him is ann romney, who is out on the cover of "usa today" today talking about her struggle against m.s. and she's going to be writing a book, she says, about that. not about politics but about her health issues, her challenges and what she's learned from them. >> first, i
